What Should I Do If My Honda Check Engine Indicator Light Turns On?

what should i do if my honda check engine indicator light turns on?

Find out what you should do if your Honda check engine indicator light turns on from Gillman Honda Fort Bend.

The check engine warning light warns owners of possible engine issues or failure. There are lots of reasons your car’s check engine light might come on. It could be anything from a simple sensor failure, alerting you to perform preventive maintenance (such as an oil change), or even warning drivers of potentially significant problems that may contribute to engine failure. So, even if the check engine warning light is triggered, it might not be a complete disaster. However, if your check engine light does come on, we suggest bringing it to us for a thorough diagnostic inspection as quickly as possible. Even if nothing feels broken, getting it inspected can mean the difference between a cheap repair and having to replace the engine.

O2 Sensors in The Car are Faulty

Oxygen Sensors in Your Vehicle are Old

There are several sensors that provide information to the engine to help it work more efficiently. However, incorrect readings from components like the mass airflow sensor or the oxygen sensors can cause a check engine light. If the vehicle is running like it should, an old oxygen sensor is the most likely culprit. This may mean your vehicle is running normally, but since the engine isn’t getting the information, it triggers a warning light. Even if the car feels normal, you should probably get your car checked out immediately to rule out more significant problems.

Bad Spark Plugs

Failing Spark Plugs

Spark plugs are essential to the performance of your vehicle’s engine. As the name suggests, they give off a spark of electricity that ignites the gas and causes the engine to run. Spark plugs demand accurate measurements for peak performance, and if the spark plug configuration is wrong, it could potentially trigger a check engine light. Some symptoms of bad spark plugs include lower fuel economy, less engine power, and your engine just will not run smoothly.

Loose Gas Cap

Loose Gas Cap

Something as basic as forgetting to replace your gas cap or not replacing it completely could easily trigger a check engine light. Your vehicle’s gas cap will probably need to be changed during your time of ownership. After 50k miles, you should consider replacing the gas cap. We recommend genuine replacement parts from the manufacturer if it’s time to replace your gas cap. Parts from DIY stores will work in a pinch, but nothing is better than original parts from the manufacturer.
